a dozen rooms have been reserved. It’s not too early for you to plan
for the last NCC overnight tour of the year. We will depart from
Urbana, Maryland, for a six-hour drive through the, hopefully,
lingering fall foliage in Pennsylvania. After a leisurely lunch
(restaurant still to be determined), we will head toward Gravity Hill,
an especially interesting stop where we’ll experience a strange
phenomenon, our Bimmers actually defying gravity. Afterwards, for
those who would like to see the Flight 93 Memorial in Lambertsville, we will stop to pay our respects. Then we’ll head to our final destination, Summit Inn Resort in scenic Farmington.
settling in, we’ll have dinner at the resort and they’ve promised to
keep the bar open for us as long as we need. Those who have attended
previous drives and overnights with the car club know this is a fun
group who enjoy good conversation and the camaraderie enjoying our BMWs
and the road brings us.
In the morning we’ll travel 25 minutes to Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous Fallingwater for a 10:00 a.m. tour. Then we’ll depart from there for a 1:00 p.m. tour of Kentuck Knob,
another Frank Lloyd Wright creation. (Breakfast and lunch will be
impromptu and on our own.) After all is said and done, we’ll head on
home, which will be about a 3 to 4 hour trip.
are 25 rooms reserved for us at the Summit Inn at a special rate of
$139. Make your reservations early by calling 800-433-8594 to ensure
that you get a room at this lovely resort (first come, first served).
For those who don’t make a reservation in time, or who would prefer to
spend a little less, there is additional lodging 15 minutes away in
Uniontown. And we’re hoping to keep the cost of lunch and dinner on
Saturday, and admission to both house tours at around $60.00 per
person; the details are still being worked out.
